Here is what I want to accomplish and let me tell you I already know that Windows XP does have the capabilities of doing the reverse of what I want it to do.
If you go into the TCP/IP setup that is bound to the specific NIC then you can set it to DHCP and then set an Alternate Configuration if it does not find anything doling out a DHCP lease.
What I need is for the exact opposite I want to have a hardcoded IP and DNS and then if it does not find communication on that hardcoded information to then change over to the DHCP and look for a lease.
Either that or is there any way to setup some type of profile so one profile will be set to DHCP and another to be hardcoded (but still all for 1 nic).
